Expert Tips

To substitute for the Greek seasoning used to season the beef, use 1 1/4 teaspoons garlic-pepper blend, 1/4 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano leaves and 3/4 teaspoon salt. In the Yogurt Dressing, substitute 1/2 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend, 1/8 teaspoon crumbled dried oregano leaves and 1/2 teaspoon salt for the Greek seasoning.

Warm pita bread, cut into wedges, is the perfect choice to serve with this salad.
